CHANGING LAND USE PATTERNS AND THE FORMS OF METROPOLITAN AREAS OF THE FUTURE

EFFECTIVE URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING DEPENDS UPON AN ADEQUATE UNDERSTANDING OF EVOLVING URBAN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS TO BE SERVED BY THE PLANNED TRANSPORTATION. THE FOLLOWING SIX MAJOR ASPECTS OF THE URBAN REGION ARE ESSENTIAL TO AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE WHOLE: (1) NATURAL ENVIRONMENT, (2) STRUCTURES, (3) LAND USES, (4) CIRCULATION AND COMMUNICATIONS, (5) ACCESSIBILITY AND (6) URBAN INTERACTION. THE NEW SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO TRACE, TEST AND PROJECT THE INTERRELATIONS OF TRANSPORTATION AND GENERAL URBAN ACTIVITY ARE DISCUSSED. THE FOLLOWING RESEARCH PROJECTS OF HIGH PRIORITY ARE DISCUSSED: (1) TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGY-IMPROVEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE, (2) ELASTICITY OF TRANSPORTATION DEMAND, (3) TRANSPORTATION FLOW SIMULATION, (4) INTERRELATIONS BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION AND OTHER LAND USES, (5) TRANSPORTATION FLOW PROJECTION BASED ON THE PROJECTION OF TRANSPORTATION AND OTHER LAND USES, AND (6) TRANSPORTATION DATA MANAGEMENT. RATING SHEETS ARE PRESENTED WHICH WERE USED FOR DETERMINING PRIORITIES OF THESE TOPICS.
